Lady in Waiting

“The rock of her chair never stops.  Her day is punctuated by the toll of St. Matthew’s Carillon bells or the train whistle in the distance.  She’s loved those sounds since 1900.  All day folks stroll past — most she remembers. She waves at them.  They can’t see her.  Instead, they see the pale green and rose colors of the house, the columns, the cupola, the stained-glass windows and tin-covered rocking-chair porch. Surrounded by wrought iron fencing, this Victorian Painted Lady waits for her new owner.” © Brenda Thompson 2016

About Kings Mountain – The Old and the New

Kings Mountain is described as a small suburban city and is the home of this Victorian Painted Lady near Charlotte in the metropolitan area, on the Carolinas’ border, just west of Gastonia in Cleveland and Gaston counties, North Carolina.

The major news for the area is the proposed $600 million Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in the works by the Catawba Indian Nation.  The next step will be final approval from the U.S. Department of the Interior that will determine whether the tribe will be able to open the proposed casino off Interstate 85. The casino would bring between 4,000 and 5,000 jobs to the area.

Located in the highly sought-after downtown area is the Central School Historic District, of which this historic home is a part.  You can read about the Historic District here.
